Lots of motels along this strip. I chose this for price, quiet, and a first floor room. My room was fine for this kind of motel. Small traffic noise. Walks/floors are thin so I could hear some other folk but really, no problem. King size bed. Clean, Loved reading lights beside each side of the bed, complete with two plug... More

I would like to say that I enjoyed my stay at the Best Motel on January 1st after traveling back from Rose Bowl in Pasadena CA that day. I stayed here last year also.

I was in Barstow just under 2 years ago, and stayed here. I was a disappointing experience. Well, because the management, (who I believe were not here then) has sent me a postcard twice in the past year asking me to give the best motel another try. I arrived in Barstow 3 days ago, and could not believe this was... More
